What is the process of potatoes?

Potatoes are grown from special potatoes called “seed potatoes” which are cut into pieces (sometimes left whole) and planted in the ground. These pieces of potato grow stems and roots from the “eyes.” Because they are able to feed off the energy in the seed piece, potato plants grow very fast right from the start.

How do potato plants grow?

As the potato plant grows, its compound leaves manufacture starch that is transferred to the ends of its underground stems (or stolons). The stems thicken to form a few or as many as 20 tubers close to the soil surface. The number of tubers that actually reach maturity depends on available moisture and soil nutrients.
